Stakeholders to discuss increasing insecurity

27 May 2014, 12:11

Nairobi - The Judiciary announced that top judges and senior security officials would later this week meet to consult on emerging national security issues.

The officials would also explore appropriate responses within the context of the Constitution and international human rights law.

National Coordination and Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Ole Lenku, and Director of Public Prosecutions, Keriako Tobiko, will give keynote speeches alongside Chief Justice Willy Mutunga when the meeting opens on Thursday at the Judiciary Training Institute in Nairobi.

Chief Justice Mutunga met top security officials early in the week to agree on the structure of the meeting.

“The Judiciary Training Institute convened the meeting after the Chief Justice instructed that it facilitates constructive dialogues with other stakeholders within and outside the government,” said a statement from the Judiciary.

It added that the meeting aims to explore international human rights and counter-terrorism, which sometimes seem in opposition to each other, and demonstrate that they should be properly viewed as complementary as envisaged by the Constitution.

The Judiciary Training Institute Director, Justice Prof Joel Ngugi, said the overriding aim of this conversation is two-fold.

“First, to have a robust conversation with other stakeholders about our respective roles in national security and the protection of individual liberties; and secondly, to explore appropriate frameworks for thinking about these issues within a judicial process that respects and promotes human rights while increasing human and national security.”

The organisation facilitates judicial education, research on issues pertinent to the administration of justice, and robust and constructive stakeholder engagement.
